Client Brief:
The client wanted the imagery to reflect the meaning and themes of the song, such as struggling to stay afloat in a modern world, swimming upstream in an ocean of propaganda, while looking to passion and love as distractions to keep people sedated.

Design Process:
The process for this project involved manipulating imagery by editing and creating a continuous pattern in order to accommodate the mood of the music, as well as to suit the dimensions required for print.
